This is part of his obituary notice published with the annual report of the Rhode Island and Massachusetts General Six Priciple Baptist Association for 1877, of which body he was a member;"He embraced religioon and was baptized by Elder Thomas Tillinghast 23 March 1828 in Scituate, but became a member of the Coventry Maple Root Church. He was ordained Deacon about 1833, and when the Scituate Union Church was organized in 1841, he was made one of it's members, and continued in connection with said church until August 2, 1859, when he united with the General Six Principle Baptist Church of North Kingstown. Brother Knight was ordained to the ministry in Scituate, October 18, 1849, and moved into the town of Exeter, where he resided until his death, which took place April 27, 1877, in the 72d year of his age. He was steadfast in the faith, of industious habits, of good character, and much beloved and respected by those who knew him. His last words,"I have fought a good fight, I have finished my course, I have kept the faith," were a fitting expression of his earnest and blameless life."
